MFT Superstar - Take Two!

Card Design Superstar









I know.  You were expecting second helpings, right?  Well, we are talking Superstardom here ... take two! seems more appropriate!

I'm getting right to it:  using the adorable London Mouse I've stamped two of the 'guards' onto Neenah Solar White, colored them in night-shades of the appropriate colors, die-cut them using the matching dies, and placed them on a piece of BasicGrey Barista paper - an excellent 'rainy' scene... it is London, after all!

Inside sentiment:
"I'll always have your back."

OH!  I couldn't forget to mention the generous free with $60  I received:  the darling Streetlights from which I've added the faint yellow glow. 

I was lucky enough to visit London with my daughter two years ago ... I've longed to return since!  'ello!  Maybe I just will!

So cute, Michele ... those sweet little guards are really perky considering they're getting drenched in that fabulous rain ... at least they can see one another in the wonderful lamp light!! Hugs, Anita :)

What a brilliant idea to use that paper, it really does look like rain, which is what it did nearly every day I was in London many years ago. This is a 'superstar' card to me!
